Taste a pint of Tadcaster’s famous beers

The traditional market town of Tadcaster in Yorkshire is famous for its breweries, thanks to its clean water. There are three major brewers in town - Tower Brewery, John Smiths and Sam Smith’s Old Brewery - and you can smell the hops in the air when you arrive in town. Tours of the Sam Smith’s Brewery can be organised by contacting the company, while The Little Delicatessen on the High Street is owned by Samuel Smith’s and sells their beers, lagers, and ciders.

Visit York and Leeds

While the town is charming enough in itself, it’s also perfectly placed for two very different cities. To the east are the narrow streets and historic centre of York. Visit here for trips to the Minster, its growing food scene and famous city centre. Head west and you’re in bustling and lively Leeds. The city is full of trendy bars, world-class shopping and plenty of culture.

Attend the Tadcaster Carnival

The highlight of the town’s calendar is its annual carnival. Relaunched in the year of the Queen's Jubilee, the event was so successful it has returned year after year. It includes a huge themed parade that ends at the carnival grounds, where visitors will find fairgrounds, food stalls and live music. Recent years have seen around 5,000 people attend - from a town of just 7,000 residents. Looking for a cheap hotel Near Tadcaster?
